Nokome is the founder of Stencila. He is originally a marine scientist with over twenty years experience in research for sustainable management of marine resources. Stencila is a project born out of Nokome’s own frustrations with traditional copy and paste workflows and the inaccessibility of many existing tools for data-driven research. He set out to create a platform for reproducible research that bridges the gap in collaboration between coders and non-coders. Nokome is based in Aotearoa New Zealand.
